At the annual Writers Guild Award’s, women writers did well this year -- in television. Film, not so much.  Lena Dunham’s Girls won best new series, one of Mad Men’s best (and controversial) episodes of last season ‘The Other Woman’ co-written by Semi Chellas picked up the episodic drama award, and Portlandia co-creator Carrie Brownstein won for best comedy/variety series. (Check out their feminist bookstore spoof immediately).
